Full description
After being collected from Place d'Arme at either 9:45AM or 1:45PM, you will travel towards the Island of Orléans to discover the flavors of the area. Located in the Saint Lawrence River, east of downtown Quebec City, you will take part in 5 different tastings at 5 different stops throughout your day. At each stop, you will be able to taste products and discover their stories. Your first stop is to the Chocolaterie Ste Petronille (producer of chocolates, truffles, jams, and ice-cream soaked in chocolate). Your second stop is the Nougaterie of St. Pierre (a producer of nougats and other sweets). Your third stop will be to the Cidrerie Bilodeau (a producer of cider, juice, and apple jelly), with your fourth stop being to the Vineyard of Mitan (a producer of white wines, red wines, and ice wines). Your final stop will be at Tigidou jam makers. Taste the creations cooked from fresh local seasonal berries, always original, natural, and 100% local. You will discover throughout your getaway the drink specialties and dishes of the region, and will also learn more about the history and the beginnings of the colonization in Île d'Orléans. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be taken back to Place d'Arme.

Pick-up and drop-off from same location in old Quebec. Tour guide was nice and knowledgeable, and delivered the information in both English and French. Reasonable number of guests per tour (we had 22). Tour was not quite as described as description lists 5 stops but we only did 4 (5th stop to Tigidou jam makers did not occur, which was disappointing). Transportation via mini-bus, which did have air conditioning, but it was not great and still pretty warm. There was a tight timeline and we had 15-30 minutes per stop, which was quick but sufficient. There were washrooms available at each stop. It really just is a tasting tour where you get a small sample per stop, with the opportunity to buy products to take home with you. I enjoyed seeing the island and being able to learn from their locals, including our guide who lived on the island. The ice cream dipped in chocolate was my favourite!

The Island of Orleans was absolutely beautiful! We traveled in October and the colours of autumn were out in full force! This was a perfect way to see some of the island and also taste some of its offerings. We encountered lovely people at each stop, and the tastings were fabulous - our 8-year-old son particularly enjoyed the chocolaterie and nougaterie. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. This was one of our favourite activities in Quebec!
